Jupiter's Moon Spewing Water Jets

Jupiter's Moon Spewing Water Jets 

New evidence has shown that Jupiter's icy moon, Europa throws jets of water out into space. 

Scientist first reported the behaviour in 2013 they were using Hubble telescope, but have now made a follow-up sighting 
It is significant because Europa is one the most likely places to find microbial life beyond Earth because of its huge ocean of liquid water. Flying through the jets with an instrumented spacecraft would be an effective way to test the possibility.            Jupiter's Moon
